By Serestino Tusingwire
The Kampala central Member of Parliament Mohammed Nsereko has forced the release of Annet Nassazi, a mother of 5 who had been arrested by police for camping at City Hall as form of demonstration against KCCA over her destroyed market stall.
Nsereko reached out to CPS DPC Joseph Bakaleke requesting police to release Nassazi and her 4 children who had been held in detention, and gave her Shs4 million as start-up capital to resume business at USAFI market.
“It hurts me as a parent seeing a mother and her children arrested and spend days outside their home. I realized the need to reach out to police to see that she is released and I will stand surety for her,”Nsereko said while at CPS.
Nassaazi on Monday stunned passersby when she carried a mattress on which she and her children sat in the rain near the entrance to the city authority offices, demanding to speak to the KCCA executive Director about the issue.
She was later detained at the Central Police Station in Kampala where she spent a night with her 4 children on cases of staging illegal protests.
According to Nassazi, she complained after her stall was demolished without any genuine reason, but no one was of help to her and that’s why she decided to demonstrate the way she did in order to have her voice heard.
“I complained about the issue at city Hall and the Kampala Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago before the KCCA ED, Jeniffer Musisi ordered for the return of my stalls, but my merchandise was never returned.” she told journalists.
